Photos show supposed front panel, batteries for iPhone 6

Number of leaks continues to ramp up

New photos may have revealed more components for the next-generation iPhone, usually nicknamed the iPhone 6. An image from Chinese site Sina Weibo shows what's claimed to be a front panel for the device. Next to it for comparison is an iPhone 5s; while the panel has similar cutouts, it's also considerably larger, and sports thinner side bezels. This is consistent with most reports about the new iPhone. Apple is also believed to be working a on 5.5-inch model, though, whereas the panel seems closer to the anticipated 4.7-inch size.

A separate photo depicts what are said to be batteries for the iPhone 6. If authentic, they are noticeably different from current iPhone batteries, since a metallic section has been relocated along the side. With the switch to larger phones, Apple may have been able to substantially overhaul batteries as well, taking advantage of the extra space. That could lend the 6 battery life more comparable to phones like the Droid Maxx or the Galaxy Note 3, which can often last up to two days on a single charge.
